    Palmistry with the meaning of palm reading or hand prediction is to learn a person’s personalities, fortune and future by analyzing his/her hands. It is also called Chiromancy.

    Origin of Palmistry
    The palmistry has its roots in Indian, Chinese astrology as well as Roma fortune-telling. From the ancient remaining record of the frescoes in ruins of India and words passed down from Brahmanism, we can find palmistry was very popular in India at that time. In China, palmistry also has a long history. Since the Zhou Dynasty which is about three thousand years ago, it has been prevailed. The first comparatively complete and systematic palmistry work in China appeared in Western Han Dynasty (202 BC - 9 AD) which was written by Xu Fu. In this article, we introduce how the Chinese people read palms in general.

    Which Hand to Read

    Before reading your palm, you should choose the right hand to read. There are different schools of thought on this matter. Some people think the right for female and left for male. As a matter of fact, both of your hands play great importance in hand reading. But one is dominant and the other is passive. The left hand usually represents what you were born with physically and materially and the right hand represents what you become after grown up. So, the right hand is dominant in palm reading and the left for supplement. 

    Major Lines to Read

    In palmistry, there are mainly three major lines to read which are Life Line, Head Line (also Wisdom Line) and Heart Line (also Love Line). Besides, there are also other lines which are also important in palm line reading such as Marriage line, Fate line, Sun line, Children Line, Money Line, Health Line, Travel Line and Intuition Line.
